Have you recently changed jobs? Or have you changed jobs a few times over the years? Then you may be juggling multiple retirement plan accounts. Sure, it’s acceptable to leave your money in your former employer’s plan, as long as they allow you to do so without charging exhorbitant fees, but in many instances. it may benefit you more to consolidate your assets.
Consolidation can make it much simpler to administer and allocate your assets. When your entire retirement portfolio is summarized on one statement, it’s easier to track performance and make changes. But before you initiate a rollover, compare the investment options and their associated fees in your old plan versus those in your new plan.
Initiating a rollover isn’t rocket science. First, check your current plan rules to confirm that rollovers are permissible – most plans accommodate this feature. Then, contact the administrator of your old plan (this information is on your quarterly statement). Some plan providers have a simple online request process, while others require you to complete a paper-based rollover form. Your current plan or IRA provider may even furnish a rollover service for you.
On another note: it’s important to know the difference between a rollover and a distribution. A rollover allows you to transfer your money from one qualified retirement account to another without incurring tax consequences. “Qualified” accounts include your new employer’s plan or a rollover IRA. A distribution can have major tax consequences.
